Brad i have purchased through housebuyers usa. No problems at all. Yes you pay for a service but i have found Nathanial and his team always quick to respond to messages or issues. Even over 12 mths after purchase.
They assisted with bank accounts and have a full team on the ground to make things as easy as possibel.
We have some issues with…[Read more]
BigGaz,Your experience with MYUsa is similar to mine. The accountant I know as they are based in my home town. Also thought their costs were way too high.Also offered some less than desirable houses in the worst parts of town. The person i dealt with wanted instant answers on purchasing 3 properties in one hit and didnt like it when a chose to…[Read more]
Also paid to be a "member" of my usa property.They had 3 properties they recommended to me and wanted an immediate answer over the phone. Luckily they offered a "new finance deal" with 70% LVR. During the next 6 mths of messing about with the "finance off" I pulled the pin and got our deposits back via Tony Richards. But he refused to refund the…[Read more]
Alex,Thanks for your input. I dont call that spruiking. That is just giving info and personel experiences.That is helpful and adds to a discussion…..not just someone openly say ….. call me i am great and can sell you the world.
at the end of the day, EVERY investment is a risk whether it is a tenner on the favorite in race 5 or real estate ,shares, art or classic cars.It all comes down to your tolerance to risk and the level of exposure you accomodate.Do your reseach, dont go in totally blind based on what a sales rep says (after all they make their living by selling).…[Read more]
Hi Rosa,No much at all really …. a few hundred in closing costs but the price i paid included insurance and property taxes for 12 mths.The only extras will be standard closing cost (alot less than in australia as there is no stamp duty on purchase)Hope you acheive your goal
Agreed, No arguements here. Eliminating the middleman always reduces the bottomline.If i were tied up with long hours at work i would like to do itsolo and increase returns and profits.What parts of KC have you bought in ?
I have found it harder to close an account than open it.Trying to close Wells Fargo/Wachovia account.They are prompt in answering emails, but seem to be dealing with 5 different peopleand none of them seem to understand the Australia is not a suburb of an American city.In the end i have to "write" a letter. No email, asking for the account to be…[Read more]
Agree Mike,My KC property is providing similar returns. Good to hear from someone who is an active intester on the ground in the US.What areas of KC are ones to avaid in your opinion ? Zip codes ect ?Rick
Hi Jeff,I agree take your time as there is no shortage of stock from what i can tell.Personally I found House Buyers USA to be very good and offer properties in the markets you are lookiing at.They have delivered the goods with aftersales service and communication. You can do alot worse than getting in touch with them.I find too many people /…[Read more]
Hi Gary,Your experiences with My USA are similar to mine.They offered 3 properties to me and wanted an instant answer.I reseached and they were in the slums of KC …… one post codes was reffered to as "the murder factory". Also same issue with photos. The ones we were shown were 5 years old !! When we asked for current photos we were told that…[Read more]
Hi Biggaz,We have one in KC . Owned it for about 6 mths. So far so good. At present I dont think we will buy any more. Might look again if the aussie dollar drops down.Our place we renovated prior to sale. It is a neat 3 bedroom house near shopping centre schools and easy access to highways and interstate.Where abouts in KC are you looking to buy…[Read more]
J – agreed. I would be putting money on a house without full address details. You have no chance of doing proper DD into the area and house without a full address.If a seller wasnt proving full address until your money is on the table i would walk awayfast as that displays there is something to hide !

They have attorney, accountants,property managers ect. They are approachable and so far i have found with guys to be very goodwith communication (yes after closing) and always true to their word.That is…[Read more]
